"I hooked her on a drop shot, rigged with a Berkley Fishing D-worm on my Duckett Fishing White Ice II Spinning Rod with 6 lbs test Berkley 100% Fluorocarbon," said Klein

Check out this 13.79lb giant ShareLunker caught by Gary Klein Pro Angler! TPWD staff led a hook-and-line effort to collect largemouth bass 13lbs+ from our research contract lake to be incorporated in our ShareLunker selective-breeding program. These fish are highly valued for our captive breeding program and traditional sampling methods are largely ineffective in capturing fish over 13 pounds. We recruited a handful of local professional anglers to give us the best chance to collect a fish of this size. Professional angler, Gary Klein, was successful in catching this 13.79lb bass, which allowed TPWD staff to enter the fish into the ShareLunker Legacy Class captive spawning program. Thank you, Gary for your help in collecting this valuable fish! Gary’s contributions to ShareLunker will continue to make bass fishing bigger and better in Texas’ public waters!

#BiggerBetterBass

Note: Due to being a private water entry, the offspring will either be incorporated into our hatchery broodstock or stocked into public waters that donate a Legacy Class fish, and the angler is not eligible for the prize packages or drawings. In this case, after spawning, the ShareLunker will be held on display at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center for an up close experience. — feeling excited.

Another view Gary Klein Pro Angler caught his first Texas ShareLunker fish recently with the TPWD! She weighed in at 13.79 and was caught on Berkley 6lb test line and Gary's Duckett Fishing White Ice II Spinning Rod!

Nice bass on 6 lb drop shot my question is why fish Camelot-Bell using 6 lb line?

Congrats Gary!! That's probably bigger than the one that broke your 25# test line at Oroville when we fished a warm spring afternoon in the middle fork, back around 1980. That was a big one too!
